A 58 year old man has been convicted after he allegedly killed his 25 year old niece and sexually abused her.
The suspect, Christopher Wall, is currently facing a life imprisonment for killing Hayley Wall by smashing a TV over her head last year December.
Harvey who died nine days after in the hospital was found wandering around outside a supermarket with series of head injuries.
But before she went into unconsciousness, she was able to tell emergency crews her name and home address.
When Officers visited her home, they found a damaged flat-screen TV at the bottom of the stairs leading to the second floor while blood-stained clothing, blood smears and blood staining was found in the en-suite bathroom.
While the suspect was fast asleep on the bed with stab wounds in his back as well as a cut to his hand.
One of their neighbor ( Name Withheld) told the police that on the evening of 13th December he heard them return home sometime after 7.50pm. And the duo appeared to have been drinking.
He later heard shouting – and Hayley crying as if she was in pain – before she appeared at his door with her head covered in blood. She then left the house.
However the Suspect had clamed he was attacked by the woman with a pair of scissors and he had used reasonable force to defend himself.
Neil Devoto, of Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team, said: ‘Christopher Wall’s violent actions on that night have resulted in the tragic loss of a young woman’s life.
‘I hope the jury’s verdict will bring some sense of comfort to Hayley’s family.’ He added.
